Retro plates

What's old is new again - Retro plates are making a comeback

Retro plates are the original green and white ‘Garden State’ and blue and white ‘On the Move’ number plates first issued between 1977 and 2000.

If you’ve just restored your car or own a retro-styled car, you can now add a touch of authenticity with Retro plates.

In keeping with the original plates, Retro plates are available in standard size only and in the specific 3x3 combinations originally issued.

Give your pride and joy the respect it deserves!

More information

Manufacturing processes of number plates have changed over time which means Retro plates aren’t an exact replica of the original plates issued between 1977 and 2000. Retro plates have a different font and the slogans are printed rather than embossed.
